Alpha Assembly Solutions joined MacDermid Enthone at the 2018 International Printed Circuit & APEX South China Fair, Booth#6H31, Shenzhen, China, December 5-7, 2018.

At the show, Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, exhibited low-temperature solder which allows the customers to learn more about how low-temperature alloys can help reduce power consumption and carbon emissions in the manufacturing process. Low-temperature product technology has ability to increase production yields, reduce component warpage and also reduce board warpage.

In addition, Alpha exhibited die attach solutions which improve reliability and device performance for automotive, alternative energy, transportation, consumer electronics, telecommunications and industrial applications. Alpha’s Argomax® Sinter Technology is well developed to meet and even exceed the demanding quality standards of the power semiconductor industry.

MacDermid Enthone’s circuit board expertise focused this year on enabling technology trends such as the cost savings and miniaturization of MSAP and high frequency. At the show, they featured the fully expanded MacuSpec acid copper metallization portfolio, and the high performance Systek brand of specialty metallizations for IC substrates.

Both Alpha and MacDermid Enthone experts were available to discuss the latest chemical and material solutions providing process predictability and smooth scale-up at every step.  These technologies are part of a suite of processing solutions that serve the electronics manufacturing supply chain at every step, from device design, through circuit board production, semiconductor metallization, component assembly, and OEM specification
